The Visian ICL is an implantable contact lens that works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, Visian ICL is surgically inserted into the eye where it provides excellent quality of vision for a wide range of correction needs.
Although similar to cataract surgery, the natural lens is not removed during the Visian ICL procedure. The lens is implanted into the posterior chamber of the eye behind the iris and in front of the natural lens. It is not attached to any structures within the eye and is designed to stay in position. You enjoy a natural cosmetic appearance because, after it is inserted, the Visian ICL is invisible both to you and anybody else.
The lens is designed to remain in the eye indefinitely without any maintenance for a lifetime of clear vision. Should your vision change, it can be removed by a simple surgical procedure.
Because the Visian ICL is implanted into the eye, it is suitable for many patients who might not be candidates for LASIK. Patients with extreme or special vision correction needs or patients with thin corneas may benefit from Visian ICL technology.
